Certainly a 'disaster' film
3 May 2017 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The performance of the two high calibre actors, that were obviously propping up this film, was atrocious, as were the performances of the other three, the kids out acted them all! The dialogue was weak and scattered and the plot was non-existent, or did I miss something blindingly obvious? What was W. Herzog thinking?
